Interesting read.
Not on all points.

I think Naughty Dog has a good handle on striking an appropriate balance between game quality, length, and production value. The Uncharted games were never terribly long at all, but still were universally acclaimed due to their overall quality.

Also, if you're trying to design or develop something, you basically have 3 attributes to deliver on. As a project manager, you can tell the execs that they can have something good, fast, or cheap. They can pick 2 out of the 3, but not all three. And thus, my response to this Sony dude, uhh, yea I think gamers will just have to wait longer. Extend your development times, and thus I fully understand that you might have to bump the price up from $60 to $70 or add more cosmetic microtransactions or what not, but if the game is good, gamers won't care.

Achievements are not for the meek, it is better to forfeit inheritance of the earth so that the mighty may look upon my gamerscore, and despair. Achievements are for men who dream; men who dare; men who achieve! Men who carve out entire galaxies with nothing more than nimble cheetos-dusted fingers and their wits, and in our leisurely twilight days we shall sit by softly flickering fires with our descendants recounting the tales of these unimaginable glories.

work computer VPN is blocking the site :/

i can't tell you the last time i paid 60 for a game or even bought a AAA. i find non-AAA games to be more enjoyable. 800 hours on gnomoria, 750* on factorio, 450 on rust, 250 on TF2, 225 on terraria**, 200 on KSP. that's maybe the price of a AAA and a half.

*just started a new play through since i haven't played in a year or so and it's basically a new game
**after my factorio playthrough going to do one with terraria for the same reason.

I'm not going to pay $60+ for a 12-15 hour game.
And when I see the credits on a game, there seems to be an aaaaaawful lot of people in the credits that are just corporate middlemen, I think a lot of the increasing game development cost isn't really tied to game development, but industry bloat.

How do you explain Resident Evil 3 or Star Wars Fallen Order? They both are NOT $20 as most people have been waiting for

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking me to explain. I know both of those games exist?
I might check out Fallen Order in a couple years.
